BARTable This Weekend: Nov. 16-18

We're in full holiday mode in BARTable land. What does that mean for you? In addition to 10 weeks of prizes, there are plenty of festive occasions taking place right here in the Bay, just outside BART's door. See our picks for this weekend below.

The annual Building Lighting Ceremony at Embarcadero Center is sure to dazzle.
To celebrate the official start of the holiday season in San Francisco, visit the Embarcadero Center’s Building Lighting Ceremony.

Festivities start at 4pm with a family fun carnival, followed by the lighting ceremony at 6pm. Admission is free. Take BART to Embarcadero and walk four minutes to the Embarcadero Center.
“Mole” is a Mexican sauce made from chili peppers, other spices and, most importantly, chocolate. Mole lovers are invited to participate in the “Mole Para Morirse” (Mole To Die For) contest, where the audience will get a chance to taste a variety of regional mole entries and vote for their favorites. The deliciousness runs from 6:30-10pm. Take BART to 24th St Mission and walk one minute to the Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts.
Those that love the thrill around extreme sports will love Cirque du Soleil’s VOLTA.
